What I Eat

Mostaccioli Noodles with Meat Sauce

Serves: 4

8 oz. Mostaccioli noodles (see what I have to say about pasta on my TIPS page)
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
½ cup jarred spaghetti sauce
½ lb. lean ground beef (I buy 93% lean/7% fat)
Grated Parmesan cheese, to taste

Cook pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, brown ground beef and break it into small pieces in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook ground beef until it is no longer pink. Drain grease out of the skillet, if there is any. Mix your favorite spaghetti sauce with the ground beef and let simmer until pasta is done. Drain pasta. Mix with vegetable oil, so it doesn’t stick. The pasta and the sauce contain sugar. Look at the nutrition labels to see how much you can have of each and still stay under 10g sugar. Top pasta with meat sauce and sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese. Have with a glass of water.
